    I'm holding off on the Disney+ train for a bit, but the trailers for that show specifically have been tempting.

    the Malordorean?
    the Delorean?

    Actually... I do know what this is, but only because I heard a review on All Things Considered a little while ago.

    I am anxious to see it, but I’ll be waiting for the Blu-ray. There just isn’t anything else I want from Disney to justify subscribing to their service....

    Apparently Disney+ is broken today. I'll wait till they figure it out before I subscribe.

    It’s Really good but the sound mixing is disappointing.

    You might be waiting for a very very long time.

    I will be doing the same for "Picard" from CBS...

    You might be waiting for a very very long time.

    Read this in the Emperor’s voice - “So be it”, lol. In all seriousness, I doubt it will be too long - too much $$$ to be made with a Blu-ray release. However, Disney has figured out just about every other way to screw-up the Star Wars franchise, so why not distribution too?

    I just hope this new one is more “Rogue One”, and less “Force Awakens”. In fact, ZERO Force Awakens would be good....

    I think unfortunately they are going to argue there is too much money to be made via exclusive streaming content vs a DVD/Blu-ray release. Now that the infrastructure is in place, it's possible getting someone for one month would offer the same return as purchasing one copy of a physical release. Profit margins are more easily baked in without physical production and distribution. And it's likely that most users don't cancel after one month.

    If it's a big hit, they might have it on Blu-ray at some point, but look how few Netflix shows make it to Blu-ray. This is the same business model. I'd say it's more likely we see a vinyl soundtrack release before we see a Blu-ray. And it needs to be a pretty big hit to even get that.

    They also have 4K versions of the Jedi series. Which is a first. They look and sound great.
    Again the 5.1 mix on the mandalorian is less than par IMO

    Just finished watching the 1st episode. An extreme breath of fresh air for Star Wars fans! Reminds me of an old Western flick.

    If the rest are as good as this one, I'm all in.

    Picture quality was pretty good for streaming, and audio was decent.

    Very nice.

    I do love the spaghetti western style of the show. And visually stunning. Glad to hear I wasn’t the only one disappointed with the sound. Thought it might be Disney plus at first, but the movies sounded fine.
